Court Rich, Rose Law Group co-founder and renewable energy department director comments to ABC 15 about the effort to strip the Arizona Corporation Commission of some authority.

Arizona lawmakers are proposing two bills to limit the authority of the Arizona Corporation Commission. Rich and attorneys at Rose Law Group have worked closely with the ACC in matters related to energy regulations and most recently, the Johnson Utilities issue affecting Pinal County residents and their access to water.
Rich tells ABC 15, “The utilities, solar providers, energy efficiency activists, big businesses, small businesses–everyone you can imagine, has been at the table and working on this for half a decade. The prospect of legislation coming along at the very last second, and creating massive uncertainty is really unfortunate. I mean, that’s not how government should work.”
He also says HB 2248 and SB 1175 could cost Arizona thousands of jobs.
